Some more details have emerged regarding Milan’s plan to try and sign Luka Jovic from Real Madrid this summer.
According to Calciomercato.com, a brand new centre-forward seems to be a priority for Milan this summer as we wait to see the details of Ralf Rangnick’s new project.
There is a long list of candidates, but Jovic remains the Rossoneri’s first choice. The Serbia international remains at the centre of Milan’s thoughts despite a tough season in Spain after his €60m arrival from Eintracht Frankfurt and the fact he is currently out with a broken foot.
The report adds that Milan are in talks with Real Madrid and the player’s agent Fali Ramadani to try to start the operation, and the Diavolo’s strategy provides for a two-year loan with an obligation to buy upon the achievement of certain objectives.
However there are two hurdles. The first is the valuation that Los Blancos have placed upon the 22-year-old: Milan can go up to €45million but it is not necessarily enough, while the second is the doubts of Florentino Perez who is not convinced about selling Jovic after a year, especially for a loss.
Meanwhile, proposals regarding alternative solutions are popping up, directed by Mino Raiola. The agent will soon sit at the negotiating table with CEO Ivan Gazidis to define the renewal of Alessio Romagnoli and evaluate the futures of Ibrahimovic and Donnarumma.
However, he has also offered Milan the chance to sign Myron Boadu, the AZ Alkmaar striker who has 33 combined goals and assists in 2019-20.
His valuation is €20million, a significant sum for a 19-year-old but within reach. Jovic the first choice, Boadu the alternative opportunity.
